O/T kind of

so,i listed my truck for sale on kijiji(its like craigs list),this is a reply got tonight.


My bank approved a loan for me to buy a similar one. I read the
description on the ad and i am satisfied.I am interested in buying
this one. My bank has approved the funds for me but they said they
will release the funds when they get proof of new insurance from
the company we provided due to the terms of the loan we were
given The cost of the insurance is $850.Please let me know if you
can send it to the company but you dont have to send the money if
you already have insurance. Once the company faxes the insurance
papers to the bank,the bank will then release the funds and cash
will be available to buy the it. The money you sent them will also
be reimbursed to you when the bank is paying you because its
already included in the loan. The name of the company is Quick
Insurers..Also let me know if you have all papers related to it in
your possession After the bank gets the proof,they will then send
you a check or wire the money into
your account. The money you sent will also be added. Please let me
know. The bank wants to know if all papers are in your name?
Details to send the money via western union money transfer are
given below.He is the senior accountant of the insurance company


Sean Holland
3 shelburne road
N7 6DL
London.
England

After they get the money,they will forward the insurance papers to
the bank and when the bank gets the papers,they will then make
funds available to you the seller. The company's branch office is in
Ontario.. I live in Ontario. The bank said if they get the papers
today,they pay you today provided you have a valid ID

can you say SCAM.
this is the first time this has happen to me with a for sale ad,i get e-mails all the time saying to collect your winnings or what ever,but i just delete them.
just thought i would share and remind people to be very careful online.

I had a similar experience when I advertised my condo for rent on craigs list. I received several long winded diaglogues asking me to follow some sort of rabbit trail that led to who knows where. WHY? I dont know. I responded to the first one and it went nowhere. I ignored the others. I think some people just like to confuse issues. Makes them feel important I guess.

Oh No it's absolutely legit. But I do that kind of insurance as well. So if you want to just send the money to me and I will take care of this with out you having to worry about it.

Who's your buddie! Julie is!

It really amazes me that these scams are still going on.Do they really think that we are foolish enough to fall for this.

Well... People really do fall for this every day. My father worked in LA impact a fraud/drug task force based out of la and he dealt with this constantly. Usually little old ladies and ultra religious people.

I had an ad on Craigslist a while back and got a scammer. I screwed with the guy for about a month. He sent me a check for $2000 over my asking price with the agreement that I'd send him the excess. I got the check, which was phony, and he started giving me a sob story about he needed the money because his wife suffered a "fatal" sickness and was in the hospital and needed surgery. I strung him along for a while telling him to check with Obama for medical help and I hoped his wife would hang in there until I got home the next week so I could cash his check.

It was fun while it lasted, he finally stopped emailing me.

I have an 85 on craigslist for parts right now and just got this:

"Hey

I've checked out your phoenix ad posted on 11/22/2009

You do not need to sell your ride. Observe my site for a different option.

Check This WebSite Link To Learn More.

Regards
Dillon "

I checked the link through a scam site registry and it was one of the Make money through google scams that everyone is doing lately. Besides the fact that the truck is OBVIOUSLY good for nothing but parts... Is no one honest?

I ran an ad on craigs list when looking for a keyboard player for a Blued band and got 5 replies from hookers. They were all willing to play,........but not a piano.

That has to be one of the funniest stories I have heard in awhile. I had a thought along the same lines, get the check and then frame it and hang it up in the garage. Chickened out though, thought somehow I might get in trouble, wife said it wasn't a good idea to mess with these people so I let it go.

Yeah, Like with Bob's scammer, I think a lot of these folks may have alternative motives beyond the obvious theft - like getting you to write back and forth so they can pick up certain info or expressions to use in identity theft.
